College News and Departmental Notes: Religious Education
by Departmental notes - 1916
On the evening of December 13 at the Union Theological Seminary a Religious Education Club was organized by some of the seminary students and those of Teachers College whose major interest is in religious education. The purpose of the club is to promote a professional spirit in religious education and to provide opportunity for the consideration and informal discussion of a number of the pressing issues in the field of religious education which cannot receive adequate treatment in the class room. Such questions as the educational value of the Billy Sunday campaign, week-day religious instruction, moral training in the public schools, the relationship of the various agencies of religious education, religious education in colleges, and other concrete professional problems will be considered. Mr. W. Randolph Burgess, a graduate student of Teachers College, was made temporary chairman, and a nominating committee was appointed. The next meeting is to be held in January at Teachers College.
